Color Trends for Your Home Interior
It’s that time again, where leading paint specialists and trendsetters release their selections for the Colors of the Year, 2016. These suggestions predict what color trends will be inspiring interpretations among designers and your favorite home design stores in the New Year.
The great thing about these palettes is that they are soft, fashion-forward shades that will work in just about any room, color theme or style. A great way to incorporate these serene colors into your home is by using a rug. Here are our tips:
Pantone, Rose Quartz & Serenity– This complimentary duo is the first color combination that has ever been selected. They were designed to bring peace and serenity to the home during these stressful times.
Pantone says the decision was based on emotion, “A symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.
Glidden, Cappuccino White– Glidden has chosen to re-rempower the color white in a new iteration, making it a statement color for 2016. When asked to describe the new shade, paint color expert, Misty Yeomans says:
“As legendary fashion designer Tom Ford said, ‘Time and silence are the most luxurious things today’ In an age of constant interruption and chatter, Cappuccino White offers a soft backdrop that helps defer distractions ad creates a calm lightness in the home to encourage a relaxed mind”.
We recommend pairing this color with delicate pastels or light neutrals.
Sherwin-Williams, Alabaster– Jackie Jordan, Color Marketing Director says:
“Alabaster represents a straightforward and necessary shift to mindfulness. It provides an oasis of calmness, spirituality and ‘less is more’ visual relief. Alabaster is neither stark nor overly warm, but rather an understated and alluring white.”
Benjamin Moore, Simply White– This color is all about appreciating the subtleties of white and the simple beauty of it’s interactions with light. It’s a contemporary, minimalistic approach and Benjamin Moore suggests using black accents for a high contrast effect. You can also try pairing with blush tones or wine undertones similar to Pantone’s colors of the year to create a complementary color trend palette across the board for 2016.
